  • - I've asked your Placement Facilitator to give you an update by the end of the week. Sorry you haven't heard anything! I've corrected the link - thanks for letting me know!
  • Exciting! Looking forward to meeting you when you are in East Texas for On Boarding in June! Heather
  • Hello - This is what an outlet looks like on board, which is type G. https://us.v-cdn.net/6030803/uploads/391/9AU533GGTRHB.jpg
  • Hello everyone, Clearly there is a lot of excitement around Senegal! We are still working through a lot of the lists, and we don't have surveys for each position (it depends on how many we are asked to staff for a field service and how many people w…
  • Hi - Electricity on board is 220 volts/50Hz, and all cabins are fitted with British style three-prong electrical outlets. Some electronics (including most laptops) come with dual voltage power supplies and do not need a transformer. Any appliance …
  • Hi @SarahBurdette - Yes, one way to deposit money into your crew bank account is to transfer it from CrewMates / donor account. It's really simple to do in the online crew account. Hope that helps!
  • Hello @HannahRadford, @DarleneGehman, @NelsonMbunua - For most medical positions, scheduling is taking place currently and we should be sending information to applicants over the course of the next month and a half. For the non-medical positions…
  • @SarahBurdette - I hope you enjoy your time on board!
  • Hi @JANETCWEST - I'm sorry you're having that issue! Yes - the password/login information is different. myMercy will be a personal email address with a password of your choosing. Navigator (and all internal Mercy Ships systems you might have acc…
  • Hi @CalineSlootmaekers - it looks like there are actually 13 other people arriving on the same flight as you! You should have access to Navigator (Mercy Ships intranet) at this point and you can click here if you would like to see their names so you…
  • Hi @EddieHulon , I see your application was successfully submitted! You should hear from your Placement Facilitator, Brianna Tucker, in the next few days. You can check your status, send a message to Brianna, or complete any outstanding tasks anytim…
  • Hi @bscharrn, it looks like you completed your scheduling survey for Senegal, which is great! Leadership on board have started making their draft schedules at this time, so we anticipate communicating scheduling decisions sometime next month. In t…
  • Hi Joseph, it looks like your application was submitted successfully! Your Placement Facilitator, Rachel-Elise Cairncross, should send you a message by the end of the week outlining the next steps. You can login to the application portal at apply.me…
  • Hi Anna, I have not personally flown Emirates, but some of our crew does! As long as you're looking at this flight:  * Arrival: Emirates Airlines 797 at 13:30 * Departure: Emirates Airlines 797 at 15:10 You should be fine. Those are in our cur…
  • Hi Joseph Park‍,  Sorry, I clearly missed this! By using the discount, you will have access to the Global Humanitarian program, with access to discounted, unrestricted, flexible, and refundable fares to and from Conakry via Brussels. You can combi…
  • Hello Elizabeth, Every insurance policy is different - so unless it specifically stated you have guaranteed coverage overseas, I do not think it would cover you. We do recommend Talent Trust Consultants (TTc) and a few others:   * Talent Trust Co…
  • Brittany, I hope you have an amazing time on board! I first went at 18 years old - and our communication systems have only improved since then
  • Wow, what a history! Looking forward to you joining. Let us know if we can do anything for you! 
  • Hi Eileen, I see this hasn't been responded to yet - sorry about that! Hopefully I can help point you in the right direction. FNPs would qualify for the any nursing position on board, but are particularly sought after for the Crew Nurse, Nurse E…
  • Hi George, Thanks for your comments! We don't typically post the future locations until closer to the time of that particular field service, just because things can change in the (now) 10 months until the next field service. We are planning to be …
  • Hi Kaylynn, Great questions! Have you seen this packing list?  No, you don't need to bring sheets or a pillow unless you want to bring your own.  At On Boarding your bedding and towels are also provided. Have you gotten the information about On …
  • Hi Marilyn,  We recently received more details about the team house situation in Cameroon! Your Placement Facilitator should have communicated this to you already, but in case not -  I've attached a site map where you can see the location of the t…
  • Hi Will, Great list! I honestly can't think of anything you're missing, but you may want to bring one more pair of pants and/or shorts. Other than that, what you have so far is great, and anything else you might need is likely to be found at Pier …
